Director Eliza Hittman is scheduled to be present.
Frankie, an aimless teenager on the outer edges of Brooklyn, struggles to escape his bleak home life and navigate questions of self-identity. He balances his abundance of time between his delinquent friends, a potential new girlfriend, and older men he meets online. Gorgeously shot on 16mm by Hélène Louvart—best known for her work with Wim Wenders and Agnes Varda—the film creates a tone and sensibility that reflects Eliza Hittman’s European influences. Contains mature content, including nudity, suggested violence, and drug references.
